"Maria Tausiet has greatly enhanced our understanding of witchcraft and the urban environment in early modern Spain. She makes excellent use of Inquisition records to explore the relationship between religion and magic in Saragossa, throwing invaluable light on mentalities there." (Christopher Storrs, History - Journal of the Historical Association, December, 2015)
